Jannik Sinner qualified for the second week of the Australian Open 2022 thanks to the victory in 4 sets against Taro Daniel, with the final score of 6-4 1-6 6-3 6-1, and he reaches for the first time in his career the round of 16 at the Australian Open.
Alex De Minaur is waiting for him. Still all incredibly easy for Daniil Medvedev, who doesn't make any particular changes to the script in the challenge with Botic van de Zandschulp. The 6-4 6-4 6-2 that seals at the threshold of two hours of play allows him to harpoon at least the second round and reaches Maxime Cressy, revelation of this first part of the season and returning from the success against O'Connell.
More complicated than expected the Benoit Paire test for Stefanos Tsitsipas, who dominates for two sets and finds himself simplistically waiting for the Frenchman's gifts in the tenth game of the fourth. Back from the extraordinary success against Emma Raducanu, Donka Kovinic opposes resistance for about sixty minutes to Simona Halep, who wins the challenge and qualifies for the 4th round.
The Marketa Vondrousova's test for Aryna Sabalenka, who actually needs three sets to overcome the third round cut in the Slam down under, is anything but trivial. The number two of seeding, which in any case remedies a false start, breaks the balance in the initial part of the second set and spreads in the third: emblematic at the threshold of two hours of play the 4-6 6-3 6-1 that is worth the challenge with Kaia Kanepi.
Everything suggests that a former tennis player, super champion of the past, could coach Jannik Sinner: from Ivan Lendl to John McEnroe, without excluding Maria Sharapova. The American legend spoke to Eurosport's microphones on the subject, exposing himself: "I am available for a part-time job to help Jannik Sinner become a great player, which I believe will become, regardless of whether I coach him or not.
I told Riccardo Piatti that if he wants my help for this splendid Italian athlete, to improve him and help him grow, I would be very happy. I saw him train last season at the US Open and he's really a sponge. " With the 34-year-old's chance to play fading, it was thought that the case would mostly be closed but it does not seem to be so: Novak Djokovic, with the help of his lawyers, would be considering the option of claiming damages from Australia, to the figure of $4.3 million.
The main issue on which we would like to raise the question relates to the conditions in which Novak Djokovic was detained in the center for irregular immigrants, also in Melbourne. Several Serbian media reports on the indiscretion, which continue to closely follow the question concerning their favorite, which was received very well by his people upon their return from the oceanic territory.
Guest on the latest edition of the Off The Ball podcast, Luke Jensen gave an interesting take on the Big 3: "Roger Federer is the James Bond of tennis. He and Rafael Nadal enjoy support from fans that is far beyond that.
which is reserved for Novak. This also depends on their behavior off the pitch. Federer and Nadal would never have placed themselves in Djokovic's situation in Australia. "
